If we could've gotten Shanahan I would've loved that, he could do wonders with CJ imo.
I'm not a Fisher hater by any means, but I do want sound in over the who would you put in over Fisher question by saying some of the new blood...meaning those having never held a head coaching position...have been successful lately. If I were replacing Jeff, and I am not advocating that, I'd go young and try to build a good team of veteran off/ def coordinators around him.
I never have understood why teams recycle head coaches that failed.
Head coaches records are skewed if you just look at the stats.
Behind every great coach there's a great GM. Most great coaches as they're perceived have benefited from a longterm franchise QB.
That's why I think it's worth taking a shot at a promising if unproven younger guy.
Fisher had his best seasons with McNair, the rest of the time we've seen him get average results.
Getting a franchise QB is a crapshoot. We are going top look good against a lot of teams this season. However I have no confidence in our coaches against the best teams which we'll have to face if we get to the play offs.
Next season I'd like to see a change.
I wouldn't mind Kyle Shanahan. Yea he's young but he's very much on the rise and he'll be a head coach sooner than later so why wait? He's got tons of upside. Just a thought off the top of my head but I know I'd rather go with a young coordinator and not an already head coach. Seems to be a popular trend.
I'd probably give Heimerdinger a shot first, myself. He's from the Shanahan tree, like Kyle, and he's already got a lot invested. I'm keen to know if our issues are with him or Fisher, but I'd like to know what Dinger would do on O if he had full control. I'd leave Cecil in place as DC.
Oh yeah, I'd also look at Mike Zimmer in Cincinnati, but he's a defensive guy.
Honestly I wouldn't mind it if Heimerdinger and Fisher were both axed (assuming we had a bad season). I'd interview Cecil, Zimmer, Manuski, Shanahan.
I wouldn't have. There is a valid reason behind his termination. You think Fisher hasn't done well in the playoffs and that it's been a long time since we've won a game in postseason play? Well, Shanahan was fired after going 10 years without winning one playoff game.
Also, Shanahan was the kind of guy who could turn a no-name, average to mediocre guy into a solid running back. CJ is a superstar; not much else for him to do out there, considering he touches the ball 65-70% of the time. Shanny could probably draw up some new trick plays or something, but I don't see a drastic change.
Why would you want Dinger gone?
I guess two poor seasons in a row with the best running back may justify it. I don't know. I like the guy.
Munchak - just kidding Muchak needs to be chained to the OL Coach postion
